The international architectural competition for the new headquarters of the Marshal’s City Hall has been settled.

The subject of the awarded competition was to design a building complex for the new Marshal’s City Hall of the Lesser Poland Voivodeship in Cracow, which within its spaces will accommodate the rooms of the WM Assembly, the Voivodeship Board, individual departments of the Marshal’s Office, offices of local government units, as well as additional commercial functions (stores, restaurants, a kindergarten and a health center).

The Horizone Studio project was among the three awarded projects, with the authors of which the Investor will negotiate the selection of the design team whose project will be implemented.
